RULES OF BASEBALL
(Cont.)
2. As in real baseball, a match
consists of 9 innings, divided in 2
halves. A half ends after 3 players of
the team at bat are put out. The teams
change sides after completion of the
first half. After the second half ends,
a new inning begins.
3. One strike (1S) is called on the
batter if:
a) He swings at a pitch but misses.
b) He doesn’t swing at a pitch in
the strike zone.
c) He hits a foul ball. (Note: the
batter will be charged one strike per
foul ball, up to two strikes.)
4. One ball (1B) is called when
the batter doesn't swing at a pitch outside the strike zone. If the batter is
thrown 4 balls ("Base On 4 Balls") he
advances to first base.
5. One Out (1O) is called if a batter or runner is put out of play when:
a) The batter is charged a third
strike.
b) A fly ball is caught in the air.
c) A base is tagged for a forced
out.
6. A Home Run is scored when the
batter hits a fair ball beyond the home
run fence. The number of runs a team
scores equals the number of runners
on base plus the batter.
7. "Base on Balls" is called if the
pitch touches any part of the batter's
body. In this case, the batter then
advances to first base.
8. When the batter hits the pitch,
he runs toward first base and continues on to second, third and home if
he has the chance. Other runners on
base may also continue running to the
next bases.
9. A runner must leave the base
he’s on if another runner of his team
is running for that base.
10. The game ends after all 9
innings are completed. The team
scoring the most runs is the winner. If
both teams score an equal number of
runs, the game ends in a tie. Note:
The game also ends if either team
scores the maximum total of 19 runs.
